Thanks for your prompt response pitaj.
npm scoped theme...
Okay, cloned Lavender, made the template changes, published to npm as scoped module ("@username/[...]"), which is new to me, npm installed on server, restarted the forum, and
Changed the Id in theme.json to not conflict with the original. And the theme name.
What am I missing to get it onto the ACP plugins list?
Bonus! Is there a way to effect template changes without having to restart the forum, daarn slow
Cheers & thanks!
This happens because npm puts the packages in a scoped folder, and NodeBB only checks the root
node_modulesfolder. NBB would have to look in each directory that starts with
@for plugins. There may be other issues too.
Using a renamed or namedspaced package name such as
nodebb-theme-myname-lavendermight be better until scoped support is added. (Although, it is ugly)
Yeah, I suddenly remembered how to do this the smart way, not using npm when developing, just git cloning the repo (to lazy to mount the server disk locally
I just found this https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-theme-quickstart, and it's quite strange that I didn't find it before, but now at least I know to search this forum instead of relying on Google =P
Thanks for the reply!
